Recently I planned a trip to far south Texas, It was a gamble to beat the weather but I went for it. I Saw at least 20 new Birds I've never seen before and was lucky enough to photograph some of them. The weather did turn bad however and my dream of perfect light was diminished, but I kept a positive outlook and made the best of it. On south Padre Island I was greeted to 40 mph winds so it was full camo on that day! I did get some amazing shots of several birds so I pushed on.
Several of the Birds from Padre Island can be found in my Hawk and Heron section . On several occasions I could see the Mexico border fence and it was heavily patrolled. I found a beautiful Buff - bellied Hummingbird at a State Park in McAllen. I waited hours and eventually got some amazing shots of it. Look in the HUMMINGBIRD group to see it!!! I know I will return to south Texas and it will be very soon! I will begin to shoot video of my trips so get ready you're coming with me next time!
